Dear Blank, Please Blank is a blog I’m surprised hasn’t yet made this list. Considering the snark and wit that this blog is so notoriously known for, I can almost guarantee that any of you guys would also love ‘Dear Blank‘. What it is, is a collection of little rants about anything ranging from the atrocity that is Twilight, to the sandwich jokes women love to hate. Each entry begins with “dear”, and ends with “sincerely”. I apologize if you like Twilight by the way. Here’s an example:

Dear Students,
I know when you’re texting.
Sincerely, No one just looks down at their crotch and smiles.
There are different categories of these little rants that you can choose from, which include title listings such as: “You’re a Douche”, “Um, WTF”, “How Dare They”, and more. The blog is usually good about updating, too. Embarrassing as it is, I check it almost every day and always come across new content. Anyway, if you want a good laugh, check it out at www.dearblankpleaseblank.com

I’m sure you’ve come across some of these “GIFs” on your friend’s facebook pages. They all hail from the latest internet sensation: What Should We Call Me. You may have even come across some spin-offs of this blog, such as “Adventures in Fratland”, or “What My Biffles Call Me.” What Should We Call Me takes real life situations, reactions to situations, and makes them somehow apply to these hilarious images and “GIFs”. My entire newsfeed is covered with them.

I can, unfortunately, waste a good amount of time looking through page by page. I’ve even caught myself actually laughing out loud at some of them because of how closely similar they represent some things I’ve gone through, or situations my friends have found themselves in. The above picture is a quick scene from “The Hills”. I’m sure you’re all familiar with it. And if you’re not, good for you. Anyway, the caption for this ‘scene’ is “When I actually look at a guy’s feet.” Let’s be honest guys, you don’t always have the cleanest looking feet in the world, and you’ve officially been called out by ‘whatshouldwecallme’.

BLOGS WE LIKE: tosh.0

Posted: May 9, 2012 by jerkmag in BLOGS WE LIKE

I personally think Tosh is a funny guy. Matter of fact, he makes me laugh really, really hard. That’s why I like his blog. Sure, it’s not run by him but the content is usually pretty solid, edgy, and downright offensive at times. Three things that I generally have no problem with blogs being, it keeps things interesting.

On Tosh’s blog there is a nice flow of pictures and videos meant to give you a good chuckle throughout your day. You can follow the blog on Twitter or Facebook as well to get the live updates as soon as something new is posted. I use it as a nice break from the generic “we’re pulling pranks on each other” or “I’m gonna watch this kid fall off his skate board” that can be found on Break or some of those other sites.

Check it out if you wanna laugh.

You’ve got the dress, the invitations, the church, the venue, table settings and the sexy husband to match. Everything for your dream wedding is planned and paid for. The only major setback? Allowing that future hubby who enjoys hunting in his spare time to pick out the cake without first consulting you. Introducing: Cake Wrecks.

Cake Wrecks is a blog about cakes for any occasion that for some reason are made in poor taste. For example, a baby cake with babies riding carrot penises. The blog was created by a woman named Jen in May 2008. When she noticed how popular her blog was getting, she decided to write a book–where she promises even more baking atrocities.

A friend at the café I work at introduced me to the blog after I baked her a penis cake for her bachelorette party. I’d like to think the cake turned out beautifully, but she obviously thought otherwise. (She’s very conservative. Oops.) But what’s a bachelorette party without a penis cake?

Nick Hornby’s “High Fidelity”

Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a music junkie to appreciate this book or movie.

But that helps.

I decided to pick up the book after watching the movie, which I also highly recommend. Come on, you can’t help but fall in love with John Cusack in his glory days (“High Fidelity,” “Say Anything”). Nowadays…not so much.

Rob (John Cusack) is good with music: he owns a small record shop and has strong views on what’s decent and what isn’t. But he’s much less good with relationships. In fact, he’s not at all sure that he wants to commit himself to anyone, especially with someone who doesn’t share the same music taste as him. No one is surprised that his girlfriend decides that enough is enough.

Chuck Palahniuk’s “Fight Club”

“The first rule about fight club is you don’t talk about fight club.”

Of course you’ve watched the movie already, but you probably didn’t know that it’s based off of a book. This is the one exception where the movie is better than the book (Edward Norton, yum), and the endings are quite different.

For those who’ve seen the movie, the book contains the same unknown narrator speaking the sentences which were lifted verbatim and transposed into Ed Norton’s voice. “I am Joe’s Prostate.” “I am Joe’s Complete Lack of Surprise.” Short statements are peppered throughout “Fight Club” and as you read, they pile up in your mind, slowly pushing on the barriers society and yourself have built up.
